The second is maybe a bit too posed looking, but the first is really great!! Nice and natural portrait of a beautiful young lady. Your lighting is excellent too.
I think I would like the third photo better if the skin tone of the arms was close to the tone of her face. You might try selecting her arms with the marquee tool and doing a levels adjustment to darken them slightly.....unless of course you like them just the way they are!
Nice Terri. My pick is #1. Good job on the conversion. LIke Stuart said in #3 it would probably look better if the arms were closer in tone to the face. I think it would be my favorite of the 3 they did.
That's a good set for a beginner, well done Terry.
#1 is very good.
#2 would benefit from tighter crop at the bottom as the "fur" the model elbows are resting on look quite odd here IMHO. BTW I like the pose on #2, the hands are very nice as is the smile.
#3 doesn't work for me at all, sorry.
You've captured her eyes so well in all three that it's hard to move beyond them.
But I have . . .
The second does look posed, but it's a great pose. I love it. My only suggestions are to try either a square crop from the top down to the middle of the "V" on her shirt or a 4:5 crop by balancing the right side with the left and then cutting just above the throw.
On the third there's something in her hair just above the part. I didn't notice it at first but, now that I have I wonder . . . do you have a rabbit?
I'm sorry it took me so long to get back to this thread. I've been really busy with the family! I want to thank you all for your great suggestions. I'm going to work on some more photos of her and will use the feedback I got here to help me improve. I think you folks are great for giving me honest and helpful ideas. Thank you all so much.
